…Is probably what some of you are saying!
Or maybe you didn’t even notice I had been gone.
Or maybe I know you in real life, and you already know! Whatever the case may be, I’m here to tell you just where I’ve been.
I can’t believe my last blog post was almost 2 years (!!) ago! It really doesn’t seem that long ago, but at the same time, it does. Does that make sense? Probably not. Anyway, A LOT has happened in the last two years, some of which will explain my (long) blogging hiatus.
#1 is this little guy:
Who is now this big guy!
That’s right! I had a baby! In fact, becoming pregnant with him is really the main reason I stopped blogging. I was very (VERY!) fortunate not to experience morning sickness during my pregnancy, however I did have bone crushing exhaustion. I didn’t cook for almost 3 months after I found out I was pregnant, and if I did, it certainly wasn’t anything worth sharing on my blog. I mostly took naps and tried my hardest to go about “normal” life.
I guess you can say that I got out of the habit of blogging, and never got back into it!
Then I had a newborn to take care of, and, well, you know how that goes. I hardly had time to breathe, let alone cook and blog.
And then this happened…
Yep, that’s right! We’re expecting again! Baby Girl should be here in the next month or so!
So why am I back now? Good question… and I’m not really sure of the answer quite yet. The truth is, I don’t have any more free time, and will have even less when baby girl arrives. But I do really miss blogging. I miss being creative in the kitchen. I miss sharing the things I come up with. And I’ve had a few of my real life friends tell me they missed my blog, too.
So I’d like to get back into it. I’m not sure what the future holds for this space, or how often I’ll be able to post, but I hope to have at least a semi-regular schedule of posting again.
With two little ones to cook for, my recipes may change to be more kid or family focused. I know I’m going to be cooking healthier, lighter foods for a while to try and loose some of the baby weight. But food is fun and delicious, and I can’t leave out the indulgent recipes I try and create. Basically, I have no idea! But I hope you will stick around and see!
So, that is where I’ve been!
What have you been up to?
